WOYWW - Week 151

Hi everyone I am back with another WOYWW this time I am in Florida so my workbench is the kitchen table. I brought my baby circuit over to leave in the house so I can have something to craft with whilst on vacation. So I packed three carts I have never used and decided to try the paper lace first and I will be using this a lot when I get back. I have also picked up some paint samples to try cutting as it is a great way to practice sizing.

I managed to visit everyone who came after me in the list but unfortunately had a flight to catch so missed quite a few of you out, so my apologies to you and I hope to catch up with you all this week in between all the crafty shopping.

If you are wondering what I am going on about check out Julia's blog and have a look around the craft spaces that are posted.

Thanks for looking

Danielle said...

Love that you brought your Cricut on vacation. The little paper lace pieces look so intricate and pretty. dani138

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Have a great vacation time. I like how when we crafters go on holiday we take care to pack something to play with. Clothes and the like, that's all secondary.

Queen Of Toys said...

What a great idea with the paint chips, thanks for that. I hope you are enjoying sunshine where you are is is really cold here in Australia ATM

Daniella said...

Your space looks great! You brought all the essentials!!!
I LOVE the Cricut mini. They are selling the new expression 2 with internet access so you can go to the "craft room" and get images and move things on your computer screen like the mini. It takes up like no room, and seeing what you are going to cut on the computer screen is fabulous!!
The only drawback that I can think of is it uses 8.5x11 paper. I have 6 inch mats too from my baby one but I haven't tried them yet!
Sorry for my very long answer!!
Have fun!!

Spyder said...

Lucky you! You;re in Florida and you're crafting!! Go girl go! run from that machine before it eats you, run to the sun go go go!!
(sorry...Just had a little turn then)
Thanks for my snoop! Have a great crafty week. HaPpY WoYwW!

debby4000 said...

Oh you make feel guilty that I don't used my cricut enough not sure what Hubby would say if I took it on holiday with us.

Anne said...

Hi there and how lucky are you on holiday and crafting - girl after my own heart. It's cold and wet here, very wet. Thanks for visiting my blog and for sharing your 'desk'. Anne x

Angie said...

Better crafter than me! When I go on vacation I want to get away from EVERYTHING including my crafting! I need that time to clear my creative mind too! Have fun and use sunscreen!

Shoshi said...

Great that you're able to continue crafting while away on holiday. Hope you are having a great time! Love the colours of the bits you've cut, and clever idea using the samples. Just shows you never need to throw anything away!

Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog, and so glad you like my current work! I don't feel very productive just at the moment, so it's very encouraging.

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #90

Neet said...

Hope the weather is fab over there for you. Here in the north of the UK we are experiencing cold, wind, rain - it's battering all the flowers in the garden to the ground.
Have fun with your machine whilst holidaying.
Sorry I am so late - you will see why in my next WOYWW posting. Thanks for visiting and for sharing. Hugs, Neet #3 xx
ps last call for my blog candy - closes tomorrow

Liz Black said...

Florida ! You lucky thing. We were there this time last year and had a glorious time. How great that you can take your crafting with you! Thanks for sharing and for visiting too. Liz at 194 x

Tertia said...

Hope you are having a great vacation! Loving the desk.
Happy very belated WOYWW

Li'l Pidge said...

Great idea to keep stash there....and I love the size of your paint samples, ours in the UK are small so not as easy to use, a great example of recycling!

Thanks for visiting my desk, and hope you have a lovely holiday.

Angela Crandall said...
